Information for German pistol, 18th. Century:

no leader has ever become great without audacity and strength.” The German Flintlock Pistol Replica truly corroborates this quote of Karl Von Clausewitz. The first reliable and relatively inexpensive system for firing a gun, ‘the Flintlock mechanism’ was hugely popular in colonial America. The flintlock concept was fairly simple: gunpowder was stuffed into the barrel. A metal rod (embedded in the bottom of the gun’s barrel) was removed. The hammer was pulled back all the way and the trigger squeezed causing a flint to strike a metal plate, called frizzen. A spark was created, making a satisfying "boom" sound. TO BE NOTED : A by-product of this "boom" was the ejection of the lead ball from the barrel at a high rate of speed. Flintlock owners had to be careful that the barrel was not facing anyone when they fired, else the “boom” could “boomerang” back on them! Feel the felicitation enjoyed by the high ranking German military and government officials by gifting yourself this magnum opus bronze finished replica of German Pistol.
